Sensis lays off workers as print-directory business collapses

Struggling Telstra subsidiary Sensis will make up to 120 staff redundant nationally following a disastrous profit result on Monday that has left the directories business reeling...

The company has “run into a brick wall”, as The Australian’s respected business columnist John Durie said last week, largely on the back of its unwanted hard copy directories.


The next time you get a call from a Sensis salesperson asking you to spend thousands of dollars on Yellow Pages ads, do your business a favour and say "No thanks, I'm going to spend that money on my website instead."
